BMW is offering an exclusive cash incentive program for new college graduates looking to realize their dream of owning a luxury car.

BMW is reaching out to recent college graduations in an effort to reward them for their hard work and perseverance. According to the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), a projected total of 1,855,000 students will graduate with a bachelor’s degree in 2015. These graduates are part of the 21 million students who attended American colleges and universities during fall of 2014 according to the NCES.

Rewarding Hard Work

These totals have increased in recent years as more and more young people in the United States have chosen to attend or remain in school at the college level during the recent recession. The majority of those millennials will now be nearing graduation and preparing to enter the workforce. According to a recent PEW study, most college graduates believe that their college efforts have paid off or will pay off, based on what they have invested into the degree.   Now, BMW is giving them even more reason to believe this – the brand is proud to honor these students’ achievements through an exclusive program offered only to recent college graduates.

Cash Incentives for College Grads

To make it easier for a college graduate to purchase The Ultimate Driving Machine®, BMW is offering an exclusive incentive program. Those nearing graduation and recent graduates are eligible to receive a $1,000 incentive plus the best available rates when they lease or finance a new BMW. Customers looking to purchase a Certified Pre-Owned BMW are eligible for a $750 incentive. Consider it a graduation gift from BMW.

Eligible drivers for this program must:

  • Have earned an undergraduate, graduate, or Associate’s degree from an accredited college or university within the previous 12 months or be eligible to graduate in the next four months and have a verifiable offer of employment.
  • Must have at least 24 months of credit history with no derogatory entries.

Graduates can choose from a wide array of new and Certified Pre-Owned vehicles including the popular BMW 3 Series, 5 Series, or BMW X3.   Drivers can stop by BMW Santa Barbara to schedule a test drive of their favorite model or meet with an experienced sales representative to learn about the newest innovations and technology found in the current BMW line-up.
